Photos & Facebook : Weekly professional photos of the games are posted on our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/beachcitysports . Recently Facebook started altering the way we can communicate with you as our ‘fans’ in an effort to make more FB Advertising dollars. We in-turn are reaching out to you as captains to make a request that you make it a priority to INVITE your friends & teammates to upcoming events, as well as to COMMENT on posts made by our Facebook Page in order to allow more mutual friends to see the posts! (We can no longer personally invite anyone to our FB Events)
Clothing: Team shirts are DRY FIT SHIRTS, and will be received no later than the 3rd week. For the first week may we recommend you bring both a light and dark shirt to represent home & away. Proper attire throughout the season will include comfortable shorts or workout pants (or some choose to simply wear a bathing suit). We also suggest bringing socks just in case the sand is too hot or cold. Balls & other equipment will be provided.
Food & Drinks: Hydration is important when playing outdoor sports, so please be sure to pack your own water bottle. Water and Sunrype Fruit Bars will be provided for free under the main tent, however please feel free to bring your own coolers, snacks, and drinks. After the games, Cruisers Pizza Bar will be reserving the entire outdoor patio for BCS, as well as offering 25% off their regularly-priced menu to all players.
Bad Weather Days: No need to stress about days that bring rain or too strong of wind! In light weather cases we most-often will still play; however if bad weather were to happen, we will ‘call’ bad weather days by 9AM on game day via facebook (www.facebook.com/beachcitysportsemail) and by informing each team captain with a text message. Instead of playing, we will stay dry by enjoying each others’ company at our Sponsor Bar!
Team Spirit Challenges: Every week we will hand out an award for the team showing the most spirit. There are no rules for this challenge, just be creative and have fun! The award is a pitcher of your choice at Cruisers Pizza Bar! Your prize will be awarded the following week.
